balenciaga f/w 2012

When asked about the inspiration for his latest collection, Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquiere told WWD, "I had this idea about a Balenciaga firm done in a very cinematic way, with different characters with different functions, the executives, the technicals, legal, the researchers, all about how women dress for work." This is Ghesquiere we're talking about, so don't expect to see any traditional three piece suits. No, his office is a very space-age, technology driven enterprise, with employees dressed in everything from semi-sheer dresses with leopard print panels to nerdy chic sci-fi satin sweatshirts. The collections stand out pieces, though, were the gray leather coats and jackets and the bustier dresses featuring pixelated snakeskin jacquard. It was a forward thinking collection that might be a little too out there for most office environments, but kudos to you if you work somewhere that fits into Ghesquiere's fascinating vision. See the complete collection, along with video of the show, here.
